Leveraging expertise: The pair uses each other’s experience to benefit their partnership: Moreno’s real estate expertise and Arquieta-Herrera’s expertise in customer service and technology.
A perfect partnership: “Partnerships like ours allow for agents to deal with family-care issues while still building a business,” says Arquieta-Herrera.
Arquieta-Herrera and Moreno’s partnership helps create an ideal life/work balance. Arquieta-Herrera credits Moreno with her own success: “When I met Octavio, my 2-year-old son was diagnosed with a learning disability that requires therapy. I felt pressure to add more time to therapy while attending to my home life, work life and going to school. When Octavio learned that I needed to ‘think outside the box’ to continue working, he taught me about short sales so I could spend more time in my home office with my son.”
